I love that the way this is a simple and fun way to get used to following directions not just from Mom. She does well on almost all the poses they teach, especially inthe ABC Yoga. We generally do ABC Yoga and then if she requests we do/watch Silly to Calm Yoga.
I highly recommend these videos. Younger children can learn with help until they can to do the poses almost. Great for teaching to kids and fun for them.
However, neither of my children will sit through an entire movie. Both movies start out fun and goofy, with lots of wiggling and animal imitations and then tries to gently wind down its viewers to a more quiet, almost nap time level. My kids lose interest as soon as the poses become more about holding still then jumping around. Every kid is different, so yours may stay engaged.
Overall, I would recommend this video to any parent looking for an inexpensive way of introducing their children to yoga and exercise. There's no need to pay for weekly classes and purchase the accessories, just pop the DVD in and encourage your child to watch. I also recommend that you do the poses with your children, because these videos can be quite the work-out for the parent as well. However, if your children are bundles of energy, they may not make it through the quiet parts.
It's so nice to find something that gets them active AND keeps their short attention spans engaged. Most kids exercise dvds we've tried are either too focused on the workout to keep them engaged or too focused on entertainment and fail to keep them moving. This is the perfect balance for us.
